A KISS FROM THE DARLING GOOD ALE

This song was written after listening to a band playing irish music in a pub at Buriton, which is a village near Petersfield in Hampshire. The atmosphere in the pub was very "up for it". Click on Soundcloud to listen to the track.

 

A Kiss From The Darling Good Ale

From a straight or a handle, that's the lanlord's request,

As he pulls you a pint of his very best.

She'll sit on the bar, so cool and exciting.

She'll tease you and tempt, so dark and exciting.

If you don't sit down, she'll soon pull you over.

A kiss from the darling good ale.


From a bottle or a keg, from the froth to the dreg,

She'll make your head spin as she weakens your leg.

She'll help you forget all your worry and woe.

She'll ease away pain, help you let yourself go.

If you don't sit down, she'll soon pull you over.

A kiss from the darling good ale.


Sometimes I've seen her with a grip and a hold,

An arrogant mistress, severe and cold.

She can hit you and hurt you and tear you apart.

Plunder your senses and break your heart.

If you don't sit down, she'll soon pull you over.

A kiss from the darling good ale.


So don't treat her lightly, be careful and wise,

For she is no lady with sparkling eyes.

As she loosens your clothing and lulls you to sleep,

All that you give her, she'll want to keep.

If you don't sit down, she'll soon pull you over.

A kiss from the darling good ale.
